The Liquid Projects and MIAbites present: The Taco & Tequila Showdown (#TNTShowdown) at Vagabond Restaurant and Bar.Â Thereâ€™s no hotter duo in food and beverage right now than tacos and tequila. So nowâ€¦imagine 12 of Miamiâ€™s hottest chefs and taquerias making their interpretation of the best taco, each aside a bartender making a bespoke tequila cocktail to pair with each taco and then judged to crown the winners.
Each of the participating chefs, led by Vagabond host chef, Alex Chang, will create their signature taco using either soft or hard, corn or flour tortillas and be as creative as they want with the ingredients. Attendees will have chance to vote for the Peoples Choice for favorite taco and favorite tequila drink ( voting closes at 8:30 pm ), while an esteemed panel of judges led by The Miami Herald Food Editor, Evan Benn, and Bar Lab, Bar Lab, Broken Shaker & 27 co founder, Gabe Orta, Adri Garcia of Verde Cafe and Nidal Barake @YoCulinario will select their Best in Show winners.Â Tickets are $65 advance sale or $70 at the door.Â This is a 21+ event only. #TNTShowdown @MIAbites1 @LiquidProjects1 @VagabondFood
